It’s important to us to make Kingston Food Coop memberships accessible to everyone. In order to raise enough funds to open a centrally located market in our city, we have set our membership share price at $150. However, to ensure everyone in our community has the chance to become a member, our Solidarity Share Fund supports low-cost shares for qualifying individuals.
How it works
If you have been income-qualified in the past year by any of the following programs, you can join Kingston Food Coop for just $15!
The remaining $135 of the membership will be covered by the Solidarity Share Fund.
- SNAP (Food Stamps)
- Temporary Assistance
- Free School Lunch Program
- Pell Grant
- SSI (Supplemental Security Insurance)
Like all our memberships, Solidarity Share memberships are lifetime, individual memberships for you and your dependents under 18.

We will begin accept applications for Solidarity Shares very soon - in the meantime, please email us (email@example.com) to be placed our waitlist. Shares will be available on a rolling basis based on availability of funds.
If you can contribute to help your neighbors join the Coop, please consider making a contribution in any amount to the Solidarity Share Fund. 100% of funds raised (after Stripe processing fees) will allow your income eligible neighbors to join the coop.
Thank you for your generosity!
